This has to go down as one of her best performances EVER.

Beyoncé just made history as the first black woman to headline Coachella. Beyoncé has always had a powerful stage presence, but she might have topped her personal best with this Coachella 2018 performance.

Watching the performance in its entirety is essential viewing, but we've got the highlights for you in case you needed a gentle reminder of why they call her The Queen.
